Akoibon is brimming with pretty red fruits, sweet spices, and delicate peonies. The short maceration is more of an infusion, giving way to delicate crushed berry fruit laced with sea salt. The vines are co-planted on dark schist slopes divided into terraces, surrounded by wild flowers and garrigue.
